CAMARILLO SPRINGS G.C. - 03/11/2021: Miraculously the Gods of Golf spared the Camarillo links from any of the untoward precipitation that was so rampant elsewhere in the Southland allowing a daring dozen of our Group's stalwarts to brave the chilly temps and somewhat less that favorable course conditions. Ron Troncatty led all scoring with an 77 Gross that won the Super Low Gross uncontested and blitzed the field by taking First Places in Low Net, Partners, & Low Putts along with some Birdie Booty for top winnings of $57. Bruce Simon also nabbed some of that birdie loot and tacked on 2nd Places in both Porter Low Gross and Low Net plus a Partners 1st Place to collect $43. Jeff Sable completed the trio that dipped into the birdie pot and added a Partners 3rd Place for a $25 take. The Porter Low Gross award went to Jim Sabbe who earned $22 when augmented by his Partners 2nd Place and Low Net 3rd(tie). The runner-up spot in Low Putts sent $6 to Miguel Romero and Bob Stone pocketed $4 from his Partners 2nd Place and tie for 3rd Low Net while a single Dollar Bill acknowledged Tom Knickerbocker in Partners 3rd Place.
BUENAVENTURA C.C. - 03/18/2021: Our 20-Player turn-out heartily applauded Ron Troncatty's superb Even-Par Round of 70 that marked "across the board" in every wager category--1st Places in Super Low Gross, Low Net(tie), Partners, 2nd Low Putts(tie) and a solo share of the Birdie Booty for a huge $104 payout! Next on the money list was Brian Oblak's almost as large $95 take accumulated from his 1st Place in Low Putts, 2nds in both Super Gross & Partners(tie) and a double dose of the birdie loot. Jim Sabbe's only marker was the Porter Low Gross $26 winner's award. A pair of 1st Places in Low Net & Partners paid out $25 to Mike Belson. Runner-up in the Porter Low Gross was worth $12 for Mark Vaughan while Pat Gallagher's ties for Partners 2nd and Low Net 3rd earned $9. A trio of $5 awards saluted Bruce Simon tied for 2nd Low Putts and Ted Winship & Jimmy Dodds locked in a tie for Partners 2nd Place. Joe Pasterello finished in a tie for 3rd Low Net to claim a final $4 leaving the remaining 10 combatants in the field back on the range examining why they didn't score better.
OLIVAS LINKS G.C. - 03/25/2021 With our increasing weekly attendance the top dollar money winnings continue to soar. This week atop the list was a humongous $121 payout to Tony Giapapas whose resume recorded 1st Places in Porter Low Gross, Low Net, Low Putts, a Partners 3rd Place and both a solo birdie & a shared tweeter. Tom Knickerbocker parlayed a tie for Porter Gross runner-up, a Partners 2nd Place, and his own 1/2 birdie share into a $40 take. Val Mayer joined the shared birdie brigade and added Partners 1st Place to collect $22. Joe Cala hit the pay window for $17 with a Partners 1st Place and tie for 2nd Low Net on his ticket. Bob Stone's $15 winnings came from 2nds in both Low Putts and Porter Gross(tied). Member-Qualifier Tony Abraham extracted $13 from the pot for a 1/2 birdie share. A tie for 2nd Low Net allowed Mike Belson to pocket $8. Winner of the day's Super Low Gross award was Brian Oblak worth only $6 and the runner-up spot went to Ron Troncatty for the remaining $2 in that wager category as neither managed to claim any of the birdie booty this week. Ted Winship received $5 for his Partners 2nd Place while Jimmy Dodds got $3 for Partners 3rd.
